LSU is No. 1 with Reynolds

One Eisenhower (Houston) High School product Jaz Reynolds (6'3, 185, 4.5) may only be a junior on paper, but he is being recruited like a senior on the field.

Reynolds' junior season came to an end as his team lost in the second round of the playoffs finishing the year 8-4. The sure-handed receiver finished his junior season with 31 catches for 681 yards and 6 touchdowns.

"I've been hearing from LSU, Virginia, Oklahoma, Oklahoma St, Alabama and Texas A&M," said Reynolds. "LSU is my number one team right now and the other school I'd really like to hear from is Oregon.

"The coach I've really been in close contact with is coach [Larry] Porter from LSU," Reynolds continued.My dad is the principle of my school so whenever coach Porter stops by to visit he speaks with him. My dad kind of then relays the message to me. He told me that coach Porter would like to see me at LSU and he thinks I could fit in with their system and stuff like that."

Does the big receiver think he could fit in at Death Valley?

"I believe I could fit in," Reynolds answered. "I went up to LSU for a camp and I liked it there. I thought they had a nice campus with nice facilities. I think I could fit in good with the team too because they have good upperclassman that will only help me become a better player."

Reynolds said he keeps up with college football and offered a prediction for the BCS title game.

"LSU is too much for Ohio St," said Reynolds. "LSU is going to win because Ohio St. will not be able to handle LSU's balanced attack."

Note: Reynolds benches 210 pounds and has never maxed out in squat, but claims to lift 325 on a weekly basis. As a sophomore Reynolds finished the year with 20 catches for 500 yards and one touchdown.
